Hey. How’s your day going?
Mine is going well because I started it with a run. It’s kinda my thing.
I have always said I sweat like a beast. It’s the grossest.
Now I know there area a lot of people in the world that play like they are bad at something or have a bad feature/habit/trait – when in reality it’s not true and they just have less than stellar self esteem or think it’s cool to say or want a compliment.
Well. I am not that person. If I say I sweat like a beast you better stay away from me after a run unless you want to get drenched as a walk by dripping like I just got out of the pool.
Exhibit B: I BROKE my earphones. The plastic piece was loose yesterday and when I went to push it on they cracked. I blame my salty sweat – because you know it’s not from the rain out here! (And I didn’t drop them or anything.)
Cat nap. He likes to sleep in the closet. I like to yell at him, “Vegas come out of the closet! I am accepting of all love!!! You do your thing! I love you.”
I don’t think he gets the joke.
